Unigine::UserInterface Class

Header: #include <UnigineUserInterface.h>

The class is used to work with widgets that are created by loading a UI file.

Usage Examples#

The examples below show:

  • Loading a UserInterface from the *.ui file and accessing the widgets it stores.
  • Adding callbacks to these widgets.
  • Managing the UserInterface lifetime.

Managing Lifetime by the World#

The UserInterface is created on loading the world. When you reload or exit the world, or close the Engine window, the UserInterface is deleted.

AppWorldLogic.cpp

Source code (C++)
#include "AppWorldLogic.h"
#include <UnigineWidgets.h>

#include <UnigineUserInterface.h>

using namespace Unigine;

void on_group_remove(const WidgetPtr &group)
{
	Log::message("world group removed\n");
}

int AppWorldLogic::init()
{

	// world user interface
	UserInterfacePtr ui = UserInterface::create(Gui::getCurrent(), "user_interface.ui");
	ui->setLifetime(Widget::LIFETIME_WORLD);

	auto main_group = checked_ptr_cast<WidgetGroupBox>(ui->getWidget(ui->findWidget("main_group")));
	main_group->setText("World User Interface");
	main_group->getEventRemove().connect(on_group_remove);
	WindowManager::getMainWindow()->addChild(main_group, Gui::ALIGN_EXPAND);

	return 1;
}

Managing Lifetime by the Window#

The UserInterface is created in a separate window. When you close the window, the UserInterface is deleted as its lifetime is managed by this window. The console shows whether the window and UserInterface are deleted or not, whether the remove event is fired, and the message from the remove event handler (if it is).

After closing, the window can be re-created by pressing T.

AppSystemLogic.cpp

Source code (C++)
#include "AppSystemLogic.h"
#include <UnigineWidgets.h>

#include <UnigineUserInterface.h>

using namespace Unigine;

EngineWindowViewportPtr window;

UserInterfacePtr ui;
WidgetGroupBoxPtr main_group;

bool group_remove_handler = false;

void on_window_group_remove()
{
	Log::message("window group removed\n");
	group_remove_handler = true;
}

void create_window()
{

	window = EngineWindowViewport::create("Test", 512, 256, EngineWindow::FLAGS_SHOWN);

	// window user interface
	ui = UserInterface::create(window->getGui(), "user_interface.ui");
	ui->setLifetime(Widget::LIFETIME_WINDOW);

	main_group = checked_ptr_cast<WidgetGroupBox>(ui->getWidget(engine_ui->findWidget("main_group")));
	main_group->setText("Window User Interface");
	main_group->getEventRemove().connect(on_window_group_remove);
	window->addChild(main_group, Gui::ALIGN_EXPAND);

}

int AppSystemLogic::init()
{	

	create_window();

	return 1;
}

int AppSystemLogic::update()
{

	if (Input::isKeyDown(Input::KEY_T) && window.isDeleted())
		create_window();

	Log::message("window deleted: %d, group deleted: %d, ui deleted: %d, group remove handler %d\n",
		window.isDeleted(), main_group.isDeleted(), ui.isDeleted(), group_remove_handler);
	

	return 1;
}

Managing Lifetime by the Engine#

The lifetime of the UserInterface is managed by the Engine, so it is deleted on Engine shutdown. A Gui instance is set manually via the setGui() method.

The console shows whether the window and UserInterface are deleted or not, whether the remove event is fired, and the message from the remove event handler (if it is). After closing, the window can be re-created by pressing T.

AppSystemLogic.cpp

Source code (C++)
#include "AppSystemLogic.h"
#include <UnigineWidgets.h>

#include <UnigineUserInterface.h>

using namespace Unigine;

EngineWindowViewportPtr engine_window;

UserInterfacePtr engine_ui;
WidgetGroupBoxPtr engine_main_group;

bool engine_group_remove_handler = false;

void on_engine_group_remove(const WidgetPtr &group)
{
	Log::message("engine group removed\n");
	engine_group_remove_handler = true;
}

void create_engine_window()
{

	engine_window = EngineWindowViewport::create("Test", 512, 256, EngineWindow::FLAGS_SHOWN);

	engine_ui->setGui(engine_window->getGui());
	engine_window->addChild(engine_main_group, Gui::ALIGN_EXPAND);

}

int AppSystemLogic::init()
{	

	// engine user interface
	engine_ui = UserInterface::create(Gui::getCurrent(), "user_interface.ui");
	engine_ui->setLifetime(Widget::LIFETIME_ENGINE);

	engine_main_group = checked_ptr_cast<WidgetGroupBox>(engine_ui->getWidget(ui->findWidget("main_group")));
	engine_main_group->setText("Engine User Interface");
	engine_main_group->getEventRemove().connect(on_engine_group_remove);

	create_engine_window();

	return 1;
}

int AppSystemLogic::update()
{

	if (Input::isKeyDown(Input::KEY_T) && engine_window.isDeleted())
		create_engine_window();

	Log::message("engine window deleted: %d,engine group deleted: %d, engine ui deleted: %d, engine group remove handler %d\n",
		engine_window.isDeleted(), engine_main_group.isDeleted(), engine_ui.isDeleted(), engine_group_remove_handler);

	return 1;
}
